We love this trend, but unfortunately for us, these are totally out of our price range! So we have rounded up some of the best and affordable Dad Trainers for 2018. 

If your not sure what we're talking about check out this article from Vogue on Tech Trainers

Now whether you are referring to this trend as the Tech Trainer (see Vogue article above) or the Dad trainer (see Hypebae article), it doesn’t really matter. What matters is that these trainers are hot property!!! They can update any outfit whether you are styling it out with your gymwear, a floaty dress or your jeans, they look fresh, fun and are here to stay!

We’ve rounded up some of the top affordable tech trainers that are either out, or coming out this year! Now, how you get hold of them is up to you, but if the Fila disruptor was anything to go by, it will not be easy!!

Starting strong….. when this shoe hit down they sold out super fast as they were the first affordable tech trainer that came onto the market, and everyone (including us) went crazy for them!

The File Disruptor

Super chunky and super white, these look great with any outfit! We pretty much live in ours!!!

Reebok Insta Pump

The trainer that Vetements collabed with and covered in graffiti (above) that made them an instant hit! Style these out in simple white or opt for some of the bolder designs - we went for these special edition Reebok X NAKED which are a real throw back, plus if you have an outsize size (like us) we picked them up at £39 from Get The Label.

Nike Huaraches City Low

Now Huaraches have been around for a while, but these new versions feel so much fresher and directional - Nike Huarache City Low. Our faves are the black and white (which have obviously sold out) but love these all-white versions, they would defo be more versatile!

The Puma Thunder Electric

Another huge shoe for 2018 - this one has only just been announced, so as of yet no realise date or pricing, but OMG do we want this shoe!!! Designed by the late Alexander McQueen this shoe just screams the Balenciaga Triple S and our fave colourway has to be the purple!

Umbro Bumpy 

We are really excited about these! They were launched in the Korean Market in March and sold out in 3 days (obviously) so fingers crossed these will be winging their way over here pretty soon!
